ALHAMDULILLAH, it's a beautiful Jumuah again!!
As every Friday we have to read Surah Al-Kahf today. Did you ever wonder why Surah Al-Kahf has chosen to be that one Surah of 114 that should be recited every Friday? BECAUSE SURAH AL KAHF REMINDS! It tells about the appearance of DAJJAL through 4 trials before the day of judgement. Surah Kahf constist of four stories :
1) The People Of The Cave: Its the story of young men who lived in a disbelieving town, so they decided to migrate for the sake of Allah and run away. Allah rewards them with mercy in the cave and protection from the sun? They woke up after many years and found the entire village believers.TRIAL OF FAITH.
2) The Owner Of Two Gardens: A story of a man whom Allah blessed with two beautiful gardens, but the man forgot to thank the One who blessed him with everything and he even dared to doubt Allah regarding the afterlife.So His garden was destroyed. He regretted but it was too late and his regret did not beneﬁt him. TRIAL OF WEALTH.
3) Musa(AS) and Khidr(AS): When Musa(AS) was asked-“Who’s the most knowledgeable of the people of earth?"”Musa(AS) said:Me, but Allah revealed to him that there’s someone who Knows more than him. Musa(AS) traveled to the man and learnt how the Divine Wisdom can sometimes be hidden in matters which we perceive as bad. TRIAL OF KNOWLEDGE.
4) Dhul-Qarnayn: Its a story of the great King that was given knowledge and power and was going around the world,helping people and spreading all that's good. He was able to overcome the problem of Yajooj-Majooj and build a massive dam with the help of people whom he could not even understand. TRIAL OF POWER.
Let's read Surah Khaf with sincere intention to implement its lessons to protect ourselves from The Fitnah of DAJJAL and all other of trials of dunya , AMEEN !!
